She's famous these days for her iconic red wool coat which she wears at climate change protests every Friday on Capitol Hill.

But on Monday evening, Jane Fonda went with black as her color of choice for her appearance at the Glamour awards in New York City.

The long jacket fell to her hips and the tailored trousers were flared at the bottom.

She added black shoes and wore her blonde hair blown out and curled under at the ends.

The double Oscar winner didn't accessorize and she kept her make up light with black mascara and a touch of eye-liner as well as blusher and matte red lip color.

Fonda has committed to taking part in Fire Drill Fridays, protests inspired by Greta Thunberg who has said people should act like their house is on fire when addressing climate change.

She chose her red coat because of the color's connotations with fire and alarm.

In a speech captured on video by journalist Nicholas Ballasy, who shared it on YouTube.   

In the clip, the 9 to 5 star said: 'You see this coat? I needed something red so I went out and found this coat on sale. This is the last article of clothing that I am going to ever buy.' 

Fonda joked that, without retail therapy, she would have a lot of free time going forward.

She has been arrested four times now for her Washington D.C. protests and on the last occasion, she ended up spending a night in jail.  

'I was in for 20 hours and for seven hours I was in a cell. It was a holding pen. All of the cells had multiple people in them except mine. In my cell it was just me and the cockroaches,' she told The Hollywood Reporter.

Fonda also told the outlet that friends in the entertainment industry including Diane Lane, Brooklyn Decker, June Diane Raphael, Lily Tomlin and Taylor Schilling will join her at her Fire Drill Friday protests going forward.
